1911 R1-S
« on: May 10, 2018, 10:53:59 AM »
Picked up my R1 stainless today. All I can say is Huntsville has their stuff together on the 1911 line. This one has a lighter, more crisp trigger than my 9mm enhanced does and I haven't even done a fluff & buff yet. I had to change out the walnut grips for some USAF carbon fiber grips as soon as I got it home. I might have to start carrying this one as soon as it proves itself at the range.

Haven't had this one to the range yet as there's a shooting ban going on in the county until the monsoon rains get here, too dry. I don't do the so called "organized" ranges since I retired from the military either. So, if this one is as reliable and accurate as my 9mm Enhanced R1, it'll be a winner.

I bet my bottom dollar it is!  ;) 1911s are pretty good guns. Heck the government wouldn't have used them for 65+ years if they had problems. Still want a range report though!  :)

Well It finally started raining here and the ban's lifted so I got to the range last Friday with the new R1. Just like the 9mm this 45 is a sweet shooter, and very accurate. I only had two boxes of ball ammo with me and it ate every last one along with 14 rounds of American Gunner hollow-points without issue. First shots shown in the first two pictures. Third picture was several mags later. None less than 10 yards.

Good groupings, and that pistol is absolutely beautiful!
